The True Meaning Of Christmas

Jesus Christ was born this day
So many years before
He came a servant to the lost,
Though he was Lord of Lords

We celebrate this joyous time,
Reflecting on His birth
Not born in a mansion, but a stable
As if He had no worth

He came so He could identify
With the human heart of man
And gave His life as a sacrifice,
Offering a better plan

A plan that reconciles us back
To our loving Father God,
Bringing hope and redemption from
Sins ruling, iron rod

For this is the only reason that we
Should celebrate this day,
To become focused on anything else,
Would take the meaning away

So let’s arise with joy in our hearts
And share it with everyone
The meaning of Christmas will always be
The birth of Jesus – God’s son

I particularly like the line “He came so He could identify with the human heart of man.” It reminds me of his favorite name for himself: Son of man He was one hundred percent God and one hundred percent man. Because of this, He really understands how we’re feeling, what we’re going through.

I hope this month’s posts have helped you find the true meaning of Christmas.

What line stands out the most to you?
